POSSIBLE CAUSES AND/OR SOLUTIONS
Range converted improperly - If propane gas is being used, contact a service technician or see the
"Warranty" section for contact information.
Oven temperature needs adjustment - See "Oven Temperature Control" in the "Electronic Oven
Controls" section.
Power failure (display shows flashing time) - Clear the display. On some models, reset the clock, if
needed. See "Clock" keypad feature in the "Feature Guide" section.
Error code (display shows letter followed by number) - Depending on your model, press CANCEL to
clear the display. See "Control Display" in the "Electronic Oven Controls" section. If it reappears, call for
service. See the "Warranty" section for contact information.
Range is in Sabbath mode (display shows "SAb") - Press CANCEL to exit Sabbath mode.
The oven door is open - Close the oven door all the way.
The function has not been entered - See the "Self-Cleaning Cycle" section.
Self-Cleaning cycle has been run in the past 12 hours - If a Self-Cleaning cycle has been run
or canceled after the oven has reached temperature, you will have to wait 12 hours to restart.
Range is not level - Level the range. See the Installation Instructions.
The set temperature was incorrect - Double-check the recipe in a reliable cookbook.
Oven temperature needs adjustment - See "Oven Temperature Control" in the "Electronic Oven
Controls" section.
Oven was not preheated - See the "Baking and Roasting" section.
Racks were positioned improperly - See the "Positioning Racks and Bakeware" section.
Not enough air circulation around bakeware - See "Positioning Racks and Bakeware" section.
Darker browning of food caused by dull or dark bakeware - Lower oven temperature 25°F (15°C)
or move rack to a higher position in the oven.
Lighter browning of food caused by shiny or light colored bakeware - Move rack to a lower position
in the oven.
Batter distributed unevenly in pan - Check that batter is level in the pan.
Incorrect length of cooking time was used - Adjust cooking time.
Oven door was not closed - Be sure that the bakeware does not keep the door from closing.
Oven door was opened during cooking - Oven peeking releases oven heat and can result in longer
cooking times.
Rack is too close to bake burner, making baked items too brown on bottom - Move rack to higher
position in the oven.
Pie crusts browning too quickly - Use aluminum foil to cover the edge of the crust and/or reduce
baking temperature.
POSSIBLE CAUSES AND/OR SOLUTIONS
Wet burner - Allow it to dry.
These sounds are normal operational noises that can be heard each time the bake or broil burners
ignite during the cycle.
Gas valve is opening or cycling on and will make a single pop when it snaps open from the solenoid.
It sounds similar to a suction cup being pulled off of a piece of glass - This is normal.
The igniters will click several times until the flame is detected. These are short clicking sounds like
tapping a nail onto a piece of glass - This is normal.
Bake or broil burner is igniting - This is normal.
Range converted improperly - If propane gas is being used, contact a service technician or see the
"Warranty" section for contact information.
